Are You Willing?

Are you willing to forget
what you have done for other people,
and to remember what other people
have done for you;
to ignore what the world owes you,
and to think what you owe the world;
to own that probably the only good reason
for your existence is not
what you are going to get out of life,
but what you are going to give to life;
to close your book
of complaints against the management
of the universe,
and to look around you for a place
where you can sow a
few seeds of happiness --
are you willing to do these things even for a day?
